What is Trademark?

Trademark or Service Mark

  • A trademark is generally a word, phrase, symbol, or design, or a combination thereof, that identifies and distinguishes the source of the goods of one party from those of others.
  • A service mark is the same as a trademark, except that it identifies and distinguishes the source of a service rather than goods.

Trademarks, copyrights, and patents protect different things

Trademarks, copyrights, and patents protect different types of intellectual property.

  • A trademark typically protects brand names and logos used on goods and services.
  • A copyright protects an original artistic or literary work.
  • A patent protects an invention.

For example, if you invent a new kind of coffee brewer, you would apply for a patent to protect the invention itself. You would apply to register a trademark to protect the brand name of the coffee brewer. And you might register a copyright for the video commercial that you use to market the product.
